It’s about to go down. Tonight, Below Deck Mediterranean premieres. (We’ll pause while you go set your DVR to record the whole series — it’s going to be major.) And needless to say, these yachties are the definitive experts on the whole region. However beautiful it may be (oh, and it is) not all of the area’s destinations are created equal.
We asked chief stewardess Hannah Ferrier to weigh in on the very sexiest place in the Mediterranean — a part of the world downright dripping with them. Her answer to that one came quite easily: “St. Tropez, baby!” she said. “You don’t get sexier than St. Tropez."
She added that Portofino is “amazing” as well, and chef Ben Robinson used the same word to describe Capri. “But sexy is St. Tropez,” Ferrier simply had to hammer home.
Why? Well, although it’s not even in line with her personal tastes, St. Tropez does draw the world’s most beautiful people for some big-bucks partying. “To be honest, I think of it as an overrated fishing village,” she said. “It doesn’t really do anything for me but you know, you’ve got… beach parties are going off, the glitz, the glamour — and it’s also the history.”
Ferrier called St. Tropez’s draw almost ineffable. “It’s got a certain kind of — you get to St. Tropez and you just kind of sparkle a bit.”
Aaaaaah, a dose of sparkle in the Mediterranean? Yes, please!
